1 Introduction This small booklet is designed to help you as a student of the BEng(Hons) in Electronic and Information Engineering (42470) to plan your 4‐year (or 5‐year if you choose the sandwich option) study so that you can: (i) identify your educational goal, (ii) select the subjects you like best, and (iii)
prepare yourself sufficiently for your chosen career pathway and future professional development This booklet should be read together with the definitive programme document of the BEng(Hons) in Electronic and Information Engineering (42470). Road to Professional Development The programme you are currently enrolled in is BEng(Hons) in Electronic and Information Engineering. Our programme is designed to equip you with the necessary skills and up‐to‐date knowledge in areas of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). It is accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) (www.hkie.org.hk). On graduation, you will obtain the award “BEng(Hons) Degree in Electronic and Information Engineering” and you will also satisfy the education requirement of the HKIE for the full membership. With suitable training and working experience obtained, you may apply for full membership of HKIE. Hence by studying this programme, you are already on the road to the professional development of the ICT profession. Subjects in the Programme Engineering is a vast and rapidly changing field, so is the field of ICT. To provide students with sufficient opportunity to acquire a sound foundation and to specialize in a particular area, our programme is designed with compulsory and elective subjects. Compulsory subjects are fundamental and core subjects that provide you the basis of EIE. You must study and pass all the compulsory subjects in the programme. Different students might have different interests or abilities in different areas. There are Elective subjects that students may choose to study in order to develop their specialization 2 according to their own interests. The elective subjects in this programme can be categorized into different areas such as circuits and microelectronics, communication, computer and information engineering. By choosing the set of elective subjects, you engage in a particular study pathway characterized as a stream. Streams A stream is characterized by the set of elective subjects you shall choose to study. The stream you have chosen would represent your area of specialization. You will have more competitive edge when you look for jobs in areas relevant to your stream. Hence you should decide on the stream carefully to make sure that (i) you are interested in the areas corresponding to that stream, (ii) you will master the subjects in that stream thoroughly, and (iii) you are prepared to pursue your future career in these areas on graduation. The followings are the streams that you may choose in this programme: Stream Code Stream Title CCT Circuits MCE Microelectronics WOC Wireless and Optical Communication CMN Communication Network CPE Computer Engineering IT Information Technology MMT Multimedia Technology You may find the full list of elective subjects that define these streams in Appendix I of this booklet. You should take at least 4 EIE technical electives belonging to a stream in order to specialise in that particular stream. 3 (1)
